Fitzgerald Square Foot Garden - Day 1
Instead of planting a garden directly in the ground, we constructed (Pat actually did most of the construction) a 4x4 wooden box to plant our garden in. This concept is called a square-foot garden and is meant for people who want to grow a garden in a small space.
After Pat hammered the wood together he and Savannah lined the bottom with newspaper and we filled it with Miracle Grow soil and we started a planting.
Our little garden (which has 16 spots) has corn, tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, squash, cantaloupes and watermelon. I also have a few okra plants and lettuce and spinach seeds that I need to find a space to plant in the yard later in the week.
I promise to keep you updated on out our project comes along... if we have veggies this summer it will be well worth the effort. Wish us luck!
